What happens if I lose my ring?

  • Hi all:

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find an answer on the forums after using the search. Hopefully someone can answer!

    What happens if I use the ring to lock and unlock my phone, but then I lose the ring? Is it impossible to get back into the phone? (Maybe it's necessary to have two nfc keys that can unlock the phone?)

    Well, hopefully you will have enabled a backup method of unlocking - if you're able to connect to a network then you should be able to log in with your google account details (or with a temporary key generated within your account if you are using 2 step verification) or if you're not then signing in with a pin is your other option.You will have had to set up pin unlock as a backup within the unlock app.

  • Ok that is good to know. I'm thinking of picking up one of these rings to lock/unlock my phone, but wanted to make sure if the ring was stolen or it stopped working I wasn't going to bone myself completely. Thanks for the info!
